Nolan Patrick conducts himself less like the 18-year-old he is and more like the veteran he will be one day, which ultimately led the Philadelphia Flyers to select him second overall in the NHL Draft on Friday night.
Having a father and an uncle who played in the National Hockey League certainly prepared him for this moment.
Patrick was far from the only player selected in the first round Friday Cheap Zach Parise Wild Jerseys with NHL bloodlines. Consider the following, as per the National Hockey League public relations department:
Elias Pettersson (No. 5 overall, VAN): His brother, Emil, was selected 155th overall by the Nashville Predators in the 2013 NHL Draft and spent the 2016-17 season in the Swedish Hockey League with Skelleftea and Vaxjo.
The Penguins have another power play, because that’s exactly what they need right now.
Pittsburgh still holds a commanding 5-0 lead at the end of the second period. But, there’s good news for Ottawa! The Senators gave up 75 percent fewer goals in the second period than they did in the first, and are one period closer to ending this beatdown. The Penguins have 27 shots on the goalie to Ottawa’s 19. That Design Cheap Jerseys number will need to go way, way up if the Senators even want to sniff a chance at winning.
“We have other things to do right away in regards to amateur scouting, pro meetings next week.” Botterill said. “But I’ll certainly begin getting into those discussions with different coach candidates. But I’d certainly like to have something in place by the draft.”
